The conference was hosted by the IRB Rugby Committee and the Laws Project Group (LPG), which was established in 2005 to conduct a major review into key areas of the sport.
IRB chairman Bernard Lapasset said: “We held a positive and constructive meeting at which all stakeholders were able to share their opinions on each of the ELVs.
“This was an important milestone for the ELV programme and it was crucial that robust discussion was entered into and that all positive and negative impacts of the ELVs were raised.
“Naturally opinions differed in several areas of the ELV programme. The IRB regards this as a healthy and positive state of affairs as the game’s laws have always and should continue to allow coaches and players to interpret law so that different styles of play can be employed.
“The unions tabled detailed research and analysis to support their views. Everyone had the opportunity to air their views.
“What was clear was that there was agreement on many aspects of the ELVs and a collective will to see a return to one set of laws to govern the game as soon as possible.
“Council will decide which ELVs, if any, should be fully integrated into law.”
